EMERGENCY ALERT

Amidst Lebanon’s worst economic and political crisis in decades, a devastating explosion in Beirut has led to the unthinkable - thousands of vulnerable children and families displaced and desperate for medical care.

With COVID-19 already pushing hospitals to the breaking point, children are at risk of injury, malnutrition and worse.

Your support today can help deliver immediate assistance to support the long-term recovery of Lebanon’s children.

Protect Children and the Future We All Share

When you give to Save the Children, 87% of every dollar goes straight to our mission — changing the lives of millions of children right here in the U.S. and around the world.

  • $50 – can keep 10 children from going hungry during a pandemic
  • $150 – can provide 75 face masks to protect health workers on the front lines of COVID-19
  • $300 – can help 12 families with emergency shelter following a devastating crisis

Thanks to your support, we’re transforming the way health care is delivered in the world’s hardest-to-reach places.
